Can You Date Your High School Teacher After Graduation?

A high school teacher who had sex with her former student has been censured and banned from teaching by the Teachers Disciplinary Tribunal. The student was a rugby league player and his coach was the teacher's husband, the tribunal said. The sexual relationship with the teacher put the student "in a situation where he the student betrayed the trust of his coach". The teacher, who was not named by the tribunal, agreed to the charges by the Complaints Assessment Committee.

They included that the teacher acted inappropriately while the student had attended the school and after he had left. While he was at the school, the teacher socialised with him, including taking him to the Big Day Out and treated him like a peer by hugging him, the tribunal said. In June, , after the student had left school, she took him and other former students partying. Police were called, but the teacher convinced them she was the responsible adult and would get him home safely - after which she had sex with him and continued the sexual relationship, the tribunal said.

She had also behaved inappropriately with other members of the rugby league team, including having them stay the night at her home where they drank beer and all slept in the lounge, it said. While she was teaching, she would also dress in a "promiscuous" manner and communicate with students inappropriately on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter. She also illegally drove students while on her restricted driving licence, the tribunal said.

She also lied to the school's principal when he asked if she was having sex with the former student, the tribunal said. The teacher agreed her behaviour amounted to serious misconduct and the appropriate penalty was a censure and cancellation of her registration. New Zealand Herald. Subscribe to Premium.

New merch: Dating a former professor - bad for his reputation? May 8, Almost two years ago, I took a class with a fantastic professor during my undergraduate time, in my primary major.

Be aware of the law Like medicine, teaching is seen more of a vocation than a profession. Hence it is guided by a code of ethics which may however vary from one society and country to another.
